Using block variations to create a custom taxonomy block, nice.

Spent an hour or two writing a (basic) WordPress plugin that consumes “audio scrobbles,” like those sent to Last.fm. So rather than (share my data with a third-party service and then) use their API to display a widget or whatever on my blog, my CMS itself is now the “audio scrobbling” endpoint.

Dug up my “old” Android tablet and my second-gen iPod Shuffle.
